    I'm trying to find out exactly what their student contract says. I can't seem to get one from them. Can anybody give some intel on this. If they can't find you work can you work odd jobs until they do? And if they cannot provide you with a codriver what do you do ?

    it just says you have to work for them for 8 months, if u leave 1 day before the contract is up you have to pay them back 4 grand
    you have to find your own codriver they just give you the phone # u do the calling if 2 week to 3 week pass and you cant get a driver you may be fired. if you need me to email you copy of the contract you will have to wait 2 week untill i get back home

    yep thats basically what it say's... you sign the contract once you get to the driving school.. no guranteed job and a constant possibility that you will owe 4 grand to them.. but if you know you wont get kicked out of school or orientation then go for it unless you got the resources to pay for your own school. but even then your not guranteed a job.. CRST is the only company i know of that has an 8 month contrat.. other companys have longer ones...good luck

    Quick question I already have CDL and 2 months exp I am headed to OK City Monday. I was sent a packet talking about 8 months. But since I do not need school I should not be held to that right?

    I believe you will still have to go through the class. My husband maintained his CDL for 20 years but and they still required him to go through the class. I don't know if your two months experience will account for anything. They said my husband's previous driving experience was invalid since it had been 20 years.

    Good Luck

    I'm leavin for IA on the 26th with 1 year exp. and a buddy of mine that just got his CDL. neither of us have to sign a contract and they're letting me train him. (.06cpm raise while in training) thats .44cpm. Woop Woop I dont know bout u guys but i like tat #
    they're paying us based on my exp. to the truck, so ma buddy is getting a free ride and doesn't have to start in the gutter like most of us. ( i started with weine at .24cpm)

    I dont have one but if you are looking to get out of it i can tell you how.i know how because some of my friends have done exactly what im telling you plus it is in the contract.ok so all you have to do is quit go home get any other job besides trucking like work at mcdonalds or something get a pay stub then the contract is void.thats it but you have no prof of schooling but there is a way you can prove you have experanice.all you need to do then is go to crstpay.com put in your driver ID an print out all your pay stubs from crst.thats it you are free
